However, at a point during the address, Governor Umaru Tanko Al-Makura begged the governor-elect, Abdullahi Sule, to give him three more months to take the state to the Promised Land.
According to him
“Because of the good intentions I have for this state, the eight years given to me was not enough; how I wish the governor-elect would borrow me three more months.
“If not because the constitution would not permit, I would have begged the governor-elect to borrow me three months to finish something I have in mind for this state.”
